Many people, when they hear the word “chemistry,” think of scientists in white lab coats. They picture bubbling liquids, frothing and churning inside mazes of laboratory glassware. Is this a fair portrayal of chemistry and chemists? Certainly, chemistry happens in laboratories. Laboratory chemists often do wear white lab coats, and they do use lots of glassware! Chemistry also happens everywhere around you, however. It happens in your home, your school, your community, and the environment. Chemistry is happening right now, inside every cell in your body. You are alive because of chemical changes and processes.
